Learn about how the Emergency Animal Response Team can help during emergencies and disasters. Talk to some of our specially trained volunteers and check out our response vehicle and equipment. We often don't think about emergencies until they happen. Come learn about Emergency Animal Response Team, and how you can better prepare yourself for the unknowns, as emergencies can impact you, your family, your animals, and your community.
